Windows 7: Windows Mail 64bit not working (0x8007000E or no icons)

Yeah, I noticed the "if". So don't know if that would be an important step.
I do have SP1 installed. I believe all the systems tested have it.

The reason I prefer Windows Mail is just because I'm used to it, I love how simple and lightweight it is and it gives me a better feel than Windows Live Mail. I'm pretty conservative when it comes to such software (also like Windows Live Messenger). Windows Mail does exactly what I expect from a good e-mail client and the interface of Windows Live Mail reminds me too much of webbased email like Hotmail. I also want it to work just because I can't stand it if I spent such an amount of money on a computer and some little piece of software fails to work, where it is compatible with 64 bits and works on other Windows 7 systems. It's just a matter of copy/paste from a Windows Vista machine to a Windows 7 machine.. I just want to solve it.

I'll see if I can contact the author of the tutorial and see if he can help me solve this.

It seems that I don't have the privileges to message him, or anyone at all..

I finally "solved" it.. It, of course, was my own fault that it wouldn't work. Basically what went wrong is that I thought WinMail.exe didn't exist on a Windows 7 machine and therefore the first thing I did was getting my hands on a Windows Vista x64 Windows Mail, and copied it to Program Files. Of course I backupped the original Windows Mail folder that came with Windows 7, but this means that I didn't execute the tutorial on the right folder so of course it wouldn't work. So I recovered the initial Windows Mail folder, made WinMail.exe visible, replaced the msoe.dll (which I already had since I downloaded tons of dlls) and it worked. So 2.5 days of work is the price I paid for thinking way too difficult and being a smartass.

But still, thank you for your input, sygnus21.

Yeah that's by design as you can't PM anyone just yet, however you can post in the thread, and something I've been suggesting.
